COUNCIL OF ARANDA DE DUERO (SPAIN)

INTRODUCTION

The Department for Culture and Education of the Council of Aranda de Duero is pleased to announce the 14th edition of the International Band Competition ‘Villa de Aranda’ 2013.



The International Band Competition ‘Villa de Aranda’ was founded in 2000, having achieved international prestige ever since. 

More than one hundred of bands selected, coming from different parts of Spain and the neighbouring countries, and more than three hundred and fifteen competitors: these facts show the interest aroused by this Competition.

What makes the Competition ‘Villa de Aranda’ so special is its nature, which has been preserved ever since the beginning and throughout the subsequent editions. This outdoor Competition takes place in the historical centre of the town, every Friday of the months of July and August, at 10 p.m. 

During these concerts, the square Plaza del Trigo, located at the heart of this town, becomes a true music hall under the stars. The music brightens up the atmosphere and announces the arrival of the weekend.

Although musical quality is the most appreciated aspect in this Competition, the originality, variety and staging of the plays are also to be kept in mind.

The balanced conjunction of all of these components brings a singular and unique touch to this Competition, appreciated by every band which has taken part in it. In this edition we wish to pay tribute to the pen that have ceased to offer us wonderful sounds and melodies, which everyone remembers. 

Rafael Taléns Pelló left us on April 25th 2012. Due to the Competition’s deadlines and in order not to interfere with the bands competing in last year’s edition, we decided to postpone our homage for the present edition. All acknowledgements never seem to be sufficient to honour the all-time masters, who make our musical world richer and more interesting. This goes for you. Thank you very much, Maestro!
